Painting the Presents of Nature
John Muir’s quote sums up the focus of my art with his quote, “In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.” My paintings give image to those generous gifts of nature that nourish and sustain us all.
Carol E. Fairbanks combines her love of nature and hiking with her creative life. Her art images, inspired by her experiences in nature, express a relationship with the natural world that she feels is essential for a healthy and prospering planet. Carol taught for about 30 years in public schools in Ohio, specializing in natural science and art. After retiring and teaching yoga for 5 years, she adventurously made a solo move to Oregon, where she has continued her study of art and creative expression. Carol now paints with acrylics and sometimes includes ink, pastels and assemblage in her art. Carol hopes that those who view her art creations will be inspired to greater awareness of themselves and their vital connection to the natural world.
